With photographs & artists illustration of the Airship & men involved etc. Text giving its construction designed to carry 100 passengers between England and Canada or India. Printed on fine gloss paper, size 8½” × 11¼”. The R100 was largely designed by Barns Wallis who later designed the Wellington bomber and the bouncing bomb of Dambusters fame.
